Where are the best open course materials? - EdTech Times | Mr. Frerichs's EdTech | Scoop.it

"Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC) are a relatively recent phenomenon. The term was first coined in 2008, and early courses were administered as discussion threads, blog posts, online meetings and Second Life. Today, a variety of top schools share free online classes and coursework on a network of cutting edge open source management platforms. Open content doesn’t need to be interactive to be valuable: most open source materials are hosted as free databases, documents and podcasts."
